Loved this recipe. Just substituted dried cranberries for the dates since I like them better. Even my guests who don't like cauliflower loved it. Roasting veggies always improves the taste for some reason Read More

So so delicious and simple to make too! Roasting cauliflower is my favorite way to prepare it but this butter nutty and sweet topping takes it to a whole other level of yum! This would be perfect to serve to guests as it's very impressive. The only thing I suggest is lightly tossing cauliflower with olive oil before roasting. Read More

I started making this but it seemed a little bland so I added cinnamon, cumin, sweet curry, and a touch of ground fennel. Not enough to overpower the dates though. It was really good. Read More
